NO - not yet. Very frustrated with the dealer. They keep saying the snow and bad weather is preventing them from working on the slide!

OK - finally got the motorhome back and the creaking noise seems to be fixed. I heard no sounds driving it home, through the parking lot, etc... The repair ticket says this:

"Checked over found damaged wiring to motor and cracked housing on motor. CORRECTION: removed and replaced motor and wiring and control box and tested".

Unfortunately the technician was gone for the day by the time I picked it up, so I couldn't get any more details than that. Now I did not get a chance to open/close the side and see how it performs. Hopefully will do that this week or so. But at least it appears to be fixed. I'm only guessing - mybe the cracked housing wasn't letting the slide close properly thus making the creaking noise. The other question I have and will try to get answered from the dealer is what could have made the motor housing crack? Everything was under warranty as well!

Perhaps Brian could offer an opinion?

I could offer one, but it would only be a wild guess. I know they have changed motors several times. I can only guess as to the reason.
